Cooper tyres are supporting a charity expedition travelling across the world to highlight the plight of children living in poverty.
Tim Dennis, affectionately dubbed the “Rambling Rat”, has travelled all the way across Europe, Asia and North America in a Toyota Land Cruiser equipped with Cooper’s rugged Discoverer STT tyres.
Tim has been pleased with the way his Cooper Discoverer STTs have coped with the conditions.
He said: “They’re amazing tyres. I’m from a farming and road hauling background so have a lot of experience in the area, and I know these are very, very strong tyres.
“They’ve travelled around 44,000 miles across terrain from frozen lakes and ice to desert, with and without studs, and they’ve held up fine.”
The aim of the ongoing expedition is to provide education and awareness for the Street Kids International charity.
On his travels through developed countries such as Japan, Tim teaches children the importance of basic needs such as food, water and shelter, and the fact that many children elsewhere don’t have access to these simple things.
In undeveloped countries, he visits the Street Kids International projects, to raise awareness of the charity’s positive work.
The “Rambling Rat” Land Cruiser is now waiting in New York, with Tim planning to drive South through the USA and Mexico, then through South America to finish in Argentina. A second Rambling Rat expedition is also planned to cover Africa.
